Abstract: Although considered as a straight-forward procedure, the risks associated with this elective procedure should be kept in mind by the surgeon so that the patients and families can be apprised judiciously. It should be ascertained that patient and/or family consents for the procedure after being appropriately informed about the benefits and risks associated with the procedure.
